This week we’re BREAKING OUR USUAL FORMAT FOR THIS WEEK to FINALLY complete what has been MONTHS IN THE MAKING. That’s right, this is the GonnaGleek SPECIAL EPISODE where we discuss that musical cross-over that happened between the CW Television Shows SUPERGIRL and THE FLASH. We’re pleased to have both Michelle Ealey and Neil from THE STARLING TRIBUNE podcast as guests this episode.

We’ll discuss the background leading up to this event including cast musical experience, how the cross over came to happen as well as the shared Glee experience of multiple cast members. Of course we’ll also give our thoughts on the episode and also take your feedback on what you thought about this episode. With all of that said there’s one burning question still: WILL THERE BE SINGING INVOLVED ON THIS SPECIAL EPISODE? You’ll have to watch/listen to find out.

CW SEED revives Matt Ryan’s CONSTANTINE

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Fans were devastated when NBC cancelled the Matt Ryan led CONSTANTINE series after just one season in 2014. Petitions were launched, #SaveConstantine was plastered across the web. The only results were an appearance on ARROW and Ryan voicing John Constantine in the animated JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK.

Well, Hellblazers, look no further! According to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, the CW SEED, home of the animated VIXEN and upcoming DC FREEDOM FIGHTERS: THE RAY, both of which are set in the shared DC TV Universe of Arrow et al., will be reviving CONSTANTINE for an ongoing animated series, complete with Matt Ryan to voice the cynical dark arts practitioner. While CW president Mark Pedowitz said “there are no plans,” to have Constantine cross over into the live shows (Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl) he did add that he’d love to have Ryan back.

This Week

This week, we are joined by Shannon from Sci-Fi Boneyard (www.scifiboneyard.com). We have some major questions this week. Where did Winn get all of that computer equipment for the new HQ? Why doesn’t Cat recognize Supergirl as Kara? What’s up with Henshaw? We also have a little Jimmy Olsen appreciation session.

This Week

This week, we have another animated DC movie about Supergirl with Superman in the title. We start off excited about having the cast of Castle in a Superman movie, slide into a nice long rant about Lois Lane, and finally talk about how disappointing the ending of the movie was. We spend some time trying to figure out how to pronounce Melissa Benoist’s name before talking about how much we are looking forward to the premiere.

This Week

Nikkie and Haley are Aprilless this week, but still manage to come up with some advice for Supergirl: shoulda pushed. Kara gets a lot of advice on how to be a better superhero, and then we get an awesome crime fighting montage. We enjoy seeing that Kara’s experiences are different from those of her cousin. We get a little more from her evil Aunt General Astra before she is taken out by a Kryptoknife.

The pilot is finally here! This week, we compare the tv show origin story to the other origin stories we’ve seen. We appreciate the diversity and representation of the world, critique some of the shortcomings of the villain, and admire the realism of the familial relationships we’ve been shown.

This week, you’ll get to meet Haley, April Jo, and Nikkie, a few geeky women that are ready to geek out on Supergirl.  We start by discussing what we know of Kara Zor-El and what we expect from the upcoming tv series before diving into her comic book history. We discuss her origins, friends and allies, villains, and love interests and the surprising ways that those categories overlap. We also make big plans for a drunk Supergirl commentary in our next episode, so make sure your liver is prepared to join us.
